NFL Week 1 Betting

NFL Week 1 betting is officially underway. The Kansas City Chiefs will kick off their title defense against the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football. The game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 PM. ET.

Texans Preview –
The Texans were 10-6 last season. Good enough to win the AFC South. They defeated the Chiefs at Arrowhead during the regular season. However, lost to them in the Divisional round of the playoffs.

Houston’s offense will look a little different this season because they no longer have wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was traded to Arizona for running back David Johnson. However, with a healthy Deshaun Watson under center, the Texans will have a chance to get the win.

Defensively, Houston gave up 24.1 points per game. They gave up 37.5 points per game to the Chiefs. Despite their defensive issues, they didn’t make any splashy moves in free agency and will likely struggle defensively in this game.

Chiefs Preview –
The defending Super Bowl champions enter the season with the best odds to win the Super Bowl and will be very tough to beat. They spent their offseason making sure their core will remain intact, giving long-term extensions to players like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

They had one of the best offenses in the league last season. Averaging 28.2 points per game, and will once again be one of the best in the league because the team is returning 10 of 11 starters, after losing offensive guard Stefen Wisniewski to Pittsburgh during the offseason.

Defensively, the Chiefs are also returning 10 of 11 starters. With linebacker Reggie Ragland leaving for Detroit in free agency. With Andy Reid in charge expect the Chiefs to be the team to beat in the AFC this season. This is the case.

The Chiefs are favored to win this game by 9.5 points. They will win by more. The over/under on total points scored is 54.5. The Texans were embarrassed by the Chiefs in the playoffs and would love to get some payback in this game. However, they aren’t as good as they were last season and won’t be able to keep up with the Chiefs, who will go on to cover the spread. With the preseason being cancelled this season because of the coronavirus, expect to see a lot of rust so go with the under in this game.
